Farrah Hall To Compete In Argentina

Local Woman To Compete In World Championship Windsurfing

Annapolis native, Farrah Hall, America’s top-ranked women’s windsurfer, will compete at the Formula Windsurfing World Championships on March 21-27, held on Lake Potrerillos, Argentina.

Farrah opened her competition year with two solid performances.  At US Sailing’s Rolex Miami Olympic Classes Regatta at the end of January, she put in a solid performance to retain her number one American ranking.  She also won the Women’s Formula Class Midwinters title earlier this month, a competition held at Merritt Island, Florida and sponsored by Calema Windsurfing.

“Winning the Calema Midwinters title has been a goal of mine since I first competed there six years ago,” says Hall.  Being the last Formula Class regatta before the Worlds, many international pro windsurfers attended the regatta to test their equipment before heading to Argentina.

Hall, from Annapolis, MD, who has her sights set on representing her country at the 2012 Olympics in London, England in the one-design RS:X Class windsurfer, is enhancing her Olympic campaign to race in the Formula Class World Championship starting next week on a lake 50 kilometers from Mendoza, Argentina.
